Bonta – 12oz bag

$18.00

This coffee is the fruit of hard work done on about two dozen family farms in a small village of Bonta, in Papua New Guinea. Small lots from these farms—primarily consisting of Bourbon- and Typica-variety coffee—are separated and processed for us by our longtime partners, the Colbran family. The result is a savory coffee with notes of dried fruit and citrus.

Origin

Story

In 2005, the Colbran family—who manage the Baroida estate—began implementing a system of purchasing coffee from neighboring farms that was ultra-transparent and focused on buying the most-ripe cherry possible from the farmers of the surrounding region. Over the years, it has been a struggle to maintain such high standards, but they have continued to find new partners interested in following best practices. The producers around the village of Bonta have consistently produced some of our favorite coffees in this unique model.
